● Women’s history is not well-represented in U.S. state history standards, and the gap is likely appearing in classroom lessons, too, according to a new report from the National Women’s History Museum.
● The report highlights that few women who have achieved excellence in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) fields, are noted in history classes. Instead, women’s contributions in domestic roles are “overwhelmingly” emphasized says the report.
● If women’s history and experiences aren't represented in textbooks, then teachers and others should focus on working women’s contributions into classrooms in other ways, says the museum.
